The recommendations are based on tests performed with 300Dpi Black and White scans, the workflow utilized OCR and stored the documents in a Windows folder that was located on the same server where the Smart Office Scan application was loaded.
Small (approximately 1000 scanned pages a day)
• Intel Pentium Dual-core 2.5 GHz
Medium-large (maximum of 10.000 scanned pages a day)
• Intel Xeon 2.66 GHz processor
Enterprise (maximum of 20.000 scanned pages a day)
20.000 scanned pages a day is the maximum one server can process. When more than 20.000 scanned pages must be processed per day the load must be spread out between multiple servers.
Please note that additional image processing features like barcode reading, deskew, despeckle, blank page removal, and auto-rotation decrease processing time by 20-35 percent.
The number of MFPs that are managed by one server is irrelevant, what is critical is the number of scan pages that are delivered to the server per day. It doesn’t matter if that would be 20 MFPs that each deliver 1000 pages a day or 1000 MFPs that deliver each 20 pages a day.
Note: A single server can support up to 255 MFPs as that is the maximum allowed by the license.
The currently shipping version of SmartOfficeScan (v2.0.122) has been tested in VMWare environments based on VMWare Workstation v6.5 or 7.0. When configuring a virtual environment, please allocate the required memory and processing specifications as noted on this page.
Note: When configuring VMWare the hardware settings should have the "Network Connection" set to: "Bridged: Connected directly to the physical network". The "Device Status" should be set to: "Connect at power on". For troubleshooting issues with Technical Support, reproduction in a non -virtual environment may be required.
